Flour, butter, butter, butter.... yeast, milk, water, and oh yeah butter.
What was your inspiration?
Love croissants for breakfast. In my opinion they are the dessert of the breakfast world, at least for me. Plus, Pillsbury has all these croissant recipes that look delicious but I really don't care for their croissant dough, strikes me more like buttery roll dough.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I made them!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you keep your house cold like mine, between 60-65 degrees, worry less on the butter getting too warm and worry more on the butter and flour not being warm enough. I think next time I make these I will take the butter out and let it warm up a bit before I put it in the mixer, I still had like chunks the last time. Oh, and make sure you let the dough warm up a bit before rolling it, to avoid cracking the butter in the dough layers.
